We recently introduced a new Safelite in the Service series to celebrate and honor our employees who have or are currently serving in the military. They frequently showcase the traits we want of our employees: integrity, commitment, teaming, expertise and a drive for extraordinary results. It’s because of them we are able to deliver a memorable customer service.
Today’s spotlight is:
Paul Groves, Regional Supply Chain Manager
Years at Safelite: 22
Branch: U.S. Army
Years of Service: Active 3 years, 7 years Ohio National Guard
Location: South Korea
Paul wanted a college education but without the debt. With the help of a Vietnam veteran and some persuasion, Paul talked to a recruiter and was soon deployed to South Korea out of high school.
Paul was a radio operator in the communication field and with the military assisting with tuition payments, he attended college as he originally planned.
He began working at Safelite in 1993 after he left the Army. Wanting to stay involved, he joined the Ohio National guard, handling
communication for an engineer unit.
“Not only did I receive the benefit of tuition, but I learned a lot about what it meant to be mature,” Paul said.
The importance of comradery and relationships holds the same value at Safelite just as it does in the Armed Forces.
“The military provides people with great experience, great training, skills, and the ability to experience our world, something I would always recommend to anyone interested,” he said.
It’s because of employees like Paul that we want to hire more veterans! Safelite is a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020. If you’re interested in applying your skills at Safelite, visit SafeliteCareers.com.
